Re: Annual Leave to be carried forward

Labour law says:-
"(2) The employer shall grant and the employee shall take such leave not later than twelve months after the end of every twelve months continuous service and any employee who fails to take such leave at the end of such period shall thereupon cease to be entitled thereto:"

May I know is there a breach of labour law if we only allow the employee to carry forward a maximun of half of his this year's entiltlement (annual leave earned in year 2009) to next year 2010 and the leave carried forward must be utilised by 30/06/2009.

Please advise as we would like to explore whether we can reduce the carrying cost of the company to meet this competitive edge..

Sorry for the typo error.

this sentence
"and the leave carried forward must be utilised by 30/06/2009."

should be read as
"and the leave carried forward must be utilised by 30/06/2010."

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it. The law says " The employer shall grant and the employee shall take.." Sometimes, it is better to schedule their leave so as to avoid everybody taking leave at the same time and at the last moment.
